Forced Marriages

Nullity can be used in forced marriages as lack of consent due to duress could be established the ground. An example of this would be if one party was threatened with violence if she did not agree to marry. In one case, a 21 year old woman was forced into a wedding dress and her mother held the back of her head during the wedding ceremony. The mother pushed the head forward to indicate she had consented to the marriage.
